    I have been having my kids “wash the car” for years, since the little one was at least 3. I get a big bucket or bin fill it with warm soapy water and some old rags and have the kids put on their bathing suits. I am in charge of the hose and spray the car and the kids while they run screaming and giggling. They love it and I even pay them a dollar to do it!

    • Sounds so fun! Bet they love the dollar too. Thanks for sharing!

  • My son loves water! These will be fun!

  • We love water play — it’s such a great way to cool off on hot days! Love these ideas!
